Very well said Caliban.
The way copyright law works, if it comes out of your head you automatically own it, so unfortunately there's no game to be played on that end.
May you find what you seek,
Solipsism is the belief nothing else but the self exists, and everything else is the the projection of the mind. In short you all came out of my head, including the corporations, thus I have a copy right on all of you.
Like Iago said, I may be crazy, but I do have my moments of lucidly.
In all seriousness, the surest way to protest is to shut down the internet. Can't regulate the internet if there isn't one to begin with.
If the government doesn't want nice things, then we shouldn't allow them to have it to begin with.
One way to do this is go back to snail mail and boycott your ISP and any media outlets (including your TV).
Is there other ways? Yes, but I'm ignorant in such matters and I doubt I have the legal qualifications to give advice concerning the issue.
As for the means of punishing the media corporations whom this law gives advantage to?
I was not making up the idea about hoaxing been used in the past to discredit these outlets. All is needed is people to write a press release, make up a BS story, send it in to the nearest news outlet and watch the sparks fly. At the very least, it will increase their work load as they try to sort out the mess and make their lives more difficult, as this law will make other people lives more difficult, thus cost them more money. Its the equivalent of paying a thousand dollar tax bill with nothing but pennies to protest a tax increase. At the very most, it can kill their livelihood. The best thing yet? It is something we all can do and it won't cost us a dime to do.
